The official event poster for “UFC 161: Barao vs. Wineland” has hit the Internet. And do you want to know what the best part about June 15′s billboard is? If you were to quickly glance at Rashad Evans’ image, it kinda looks like he’s sporting the Kid fade from Kid ‘n Play because of how he’s positioned against Eddie Wineland’s shorts. Regarding a more important matter, it’s interesting how the headline of the ad says “World Bantamweight Championship” and not “Interim Bantamweight Championship” like it did for Renan Barao’s first interim title defense. I wonder what injured bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz thinks about the change. Did Cruz and White have their chat? Was “The Dominator” stripped? Am I just being extra suspicious this April Fools’ morning? MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada hosts the festivities. Here is the show’s current lineup: Roland Delorme vs. Edwin Figueroa John Maguire vs. Mitch Clarke Ryan Jimmo vs. Igor Pokrajac TJ Waldburger vs. Sean Pierson Sam Stout vs. Isaac Vallie-Flagg Soa Palelei vs. Stipe Miocic Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans Eddie Wineland vs. Renan Barao (UFC bantamweight champion)
